SHAW UNIVERSITY JOURNAL 



SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 

Never before bad Shaw University seen such a multitude of Freshmen as swarmed the 
campus in 1931. The "Class of "38" broke the Freshmen record by coming in 198 strong. 

We believed from the very beginning that we were destined to make certain achievements, 
for we found ready to welcome us, a most kind and able President, Dr. Wm. S. Nelson, as- 
sisted by a faculty equally competent in its capacity as be. We realized the attitude toward 
Freshmen from the very heginning, and we vowed that with the kind assistance of the ever 
dependable faculty, we, the class of '38, would show the upperclassmen that here was a 
class entering the walls of Shaw University to be different, distinctive. We felt we had 
talents of merit, and we were determined that more than ourselves should be aware of them. 

With an apology for the egotism you might find here, the class of '38 modestly presents its 
record of achievements during each of our four years here: 

As Freshmen we were active in extra-curricular activities on the campus to the following 
extent; many of the main-stays on the football team were freshmen. At the end of the first 
semester eight persons on the honor roll out of thirty-seven, were members of our class. We 
were represented in the University Choral Society by eight persons, and on the men and 
women's basketball team by five and three persons respectively. We were also well repre- 
sented in the Dramatics Club and productions. 

The class of '38 showed a 43 per cent increase over the 1933-34 school enrollment. The 
average age for the men of the freshman class was 20.1, while that of the ladies was 18.3. 
There were three young ladies who were fifteen years of age at the time of registration. 

Under the leadership of Mr. Edward Littlejohn as President, the class of '38 made its 
dehut at Shaw University one of success. He had as his co-workers Miss Mamie Yeargin, 
Vice President; Miss Frances Parker, Secretary; Miss Magdalene Walker, Assistant Secre- 
tary; and Mrs. Fannie Taylor, Treasurer. We were represented on the Student Council by 
Miss Emily Daniels and Mr. Grant Jones, and Miss Theora Weaver won the Y.W.C.A. 
popularity contest. 

We were especially proud to have as our class adviser, Mr. James Lee, who worked with us 
unerringly in our endeavors. 

The Sophomore year found us more determined to make for ourselves a name, for the 
waves of life had decreased our number to ninety-one. We returned in the midst of the 70th 
Anniversary Campaign, with Mr. Benjamin Quarels as our adviser, and Mr. Robert Garrett 
as our President. The Sophomore Class pressed on, although often under unfavorable con- 
ditions. We felt keenly the loss of those in our midst, but we, the class of '38, were not to be 
stopped. Robert Garrett had as his co-workers Miss Magdalene Walker, Secretary, and Mr. 
Benjamin Collier, Treasurer. 

At the end of the first semester we were represented on the honor roll by seven persons. 
We showed our wisdom, so characteristic of sophomores, by having four campus organizations 
led by members of our class. We were also represented on the football, basketball, and track 
teams. During this year, three persons in the double sextet were Sophomores. This group 
had the distinction of broadcasting over the facilities of the National Broadcasting Com- 
pany. We were more than proud of our representatives. 

During this year the dormitory councils were formed in Shaw and Estey Hall. We were 
represented by Mr. Benjamin Collier, and Miss Marie Tyler respectively. In the Y.W.C.A. 
popularity contest, we were represented by Miss Cecelia Lawrence. 

With the close of school in our Sophomore year, we pledged ourselves to return to Shaw 
the following fall, being even more ably prepared and ready to seek higher achievements. 

With the sophistication that only Juniors can have, we returned to Shaw University feeling 
proud that we had come this far together. Our number had been decreased to seventy-one, 
but during this year we surpassed our achievements of the past two years by far. Surely, 
we felt ourselves to be nearing the goal we set when we entered Shaw 198 strong in 193L

SHAW UNIVERSITY JOURNAL 



We found awaiting us a new President, accompanied by fourteen new faculty members. 
Surely the Junior Class had to make themselves recognized. In an effort to do just this, we 
had five men on the football team, six persons leading student activities, and seven persons 
on the honor roll. We topped our year's achievements by having one of our members make 
the Alpha Omicron Honor Society. During the following spring, three members of our class 
attended the Y.W.C.A. Conference at Kings Mountain, N. C. 

We had as our President, Robert Garrett. As his co-workers we had Miss Emily Daniels, 
Secretary, and Mr. Richard Smith, Treasurer. Under the careful guidance of Mr. J. F. Price, 
the Junior Class gave one of the most elaborate Junior and Senior Proms given by colleges 
of our race in the State. We left school feeling quite pleased over our work, but realizing 
all too well that a much larger job awaited us next fall. 

Sixty-five dignified Seniors returned to Shaw University. We were Cognizant from the 
beginning that we had dwindled from 198 to 65. This made our job even larger, for the 
sixty-five of us left, had the same, and more responsibilities facing us that we faced when 
there were 198. We were not in the least discouraged, We knew we could do, and we were 
willing to prove it. 

Under the guidance of Mr. J. F. Price as our adviser for the second consecutive year, we 
are quite pleased with our achievements up to the present. We have as our President, Mr. 
Robert Garrett, who has served in this capacity for the past three years. As his co-workers 
we have Miss Mary D. Williams, Vice President; Miss Blandena Davis, Secretary; Miss 
Marie Tyler, Assistant Secretary; and Miss Kennie Dixon, Treasurer. 

We have eleven persons leading Student Activities, and four persons in the Alpha Omicron 
Honor Society. A member of our class, Miss Eva Frazer, was the Y.W.C.A. representative 
at Oxford, Ohio, while Mr. Benjamin Collier had the honor of being captain of the foot- 
ball team. 

During our four years here we have participated in every extra-curricular activity on the 
campus, having one in our midst to become Miss Shrew this year. 

The Class of '38 has lived under two presidents, and under two graduation requirements. 

With this record of achievements, the Class of '38 says adieu to Shaw University. We 
hope that our efforts here for the past four years have not been in vain, and that those of 
you left behind will see something in our past worth emulating. With the sincere wish that 
Shaw University and you may always receive God's blessings, we leave you.
